It was great to be back in Cornwall again after having to cancel last year due to the pandemic. So quiet and peaceful here at Higher Carnon. The birdsong is amazing, so many different species. Walking along the cycle trail was lovely, albeit for the sudden influx of cycling families out for a ride as well. Everyone was just so happy to be out and about at last. Lovely sunny days at Trebah, Trelissick and Heligan Gardens. Trelissick and Trebah have their own little quiet beaches, quiet and peaceful.

Lovely property, rural location but still close enough to Truro to be convenient to get a take away. Had excellent afternoon kayaking at Loe beach only 3 miles away. Kayaked to the Pandora Inn lovely pub, so nice we booked to go back for an evening meal food was excellent. I would have no hesitation in booking this property again.

Mr Fildes September 2020
The farmhouse is a real gem - very well equipped and provides privacy and quiet whilst being only a few minutes from Truro.
Mrs McKenna August 2020
A beautiful and very comfortable family house with a gorgeous garden in a lovely peaceful area of Cornwall. Although situated in the countryside it is close to everything, shops, pubs, walks and beaches in both North and South Cornwall. It was the perfect place to enjoy a quiet family holiday away from the crowds. Would highly recommend and we hope to stay there again.

Pretty cottage, great secluded location to watch birds of prey swooping around the fields
Mrs Molan September 2019
As wonderful as always -your standards seem higher than other companies
Mr Hibberd August 2019
A wonderfully spacious property for five adults and 3 children. Lovely and quiet and convenient location to explore Cornwall.
Mr Fordham May 2019
Excellent location for the biking trails coast to coast which was why we picked it originally.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We hope you enjoyed exploring the mining trails - it's so easy to access the Bissoe trail from the house, and for anyone slightly less used to cycling, fear not; there are pubs at either end and plenty of opportunity for refreshment en route! Classic Cottages

We have just returned from a lovely week at Higher Carnon Farmhouse. It is in a very quiet and peaceful location but within easy access to Falmouth and Truro and good beaches. The farmhouse is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. A lovely cream tea and flowers on arrival too.
Ms Fidler August 2018
Extremely unhappy about the plumbing situation we experienced during our stay. Daily disruption to our use of the property regarding various plumbing issues and no use of the main bathroom until the last day by which time the only remaining shower had begun leaking through the ceiling. I understand that these things happen and in principle am flexible about property maintenance however I was very disappointed about the degree of disruption as well as the sluggish and reluctant response regarding compensation. Not what I would have expected from Classic Cottages.

We were so sorry that the shower failure during your stay resulted in emergency plumbing works to put things right. We always try our best to resolve these unexpected situations, and it's disappointing that you felt we were slow in responding and arranging compensation, especially as our team were in regular contact during the week to keep you updated. We're glad that we were able to settle on a refund that you felt was appropriate and which reflected the inconvenience this of course caused. Tanya, Customer Services Manager

Perfect holiday location for large families, in the middle of nowhere but also so close to Truro and Falmouth. Makes a great base for exploring beautiful Cornwall, The garden is brilliant for the kids to run around in. Relax and enjoy :-)
Mr Owen May 2018
This cottage is in a lovely tranquil spot.
A wonderful cream tea on arrival helps one wind down instantly. There is so much space for everyone.
It is such a lovely cottage that to return after a long day out exploring, walking and swimming is wonderful.

Great position, well furnished and equipped.
Mr Cull March 2018
Very good location and accommodation was warm, well fitted out and comfortable.
Mr Merrick September 2017
Fantastic house set in a quiet, peaceful location. Very spacious inside and nicely decorated and furnished.
Mrs Smith July 2017
Excellent family holiday property. Well maintained and had everything you could wish for in the kitchen and the utility room. There was also plenty of leaflets for activities in the area, also games for the children were found in one of the cupboards. We were fortunate the weather was fairly good so we could get out and about. Unfortunately because the weather was unsettled we missed out on BBQ's in the very large garden. This would have been the icing on the cake.
Mr Higenbottam July 2017
Nice location right next to Coast to Coast cycle trail. Superb kitchen and bathroom facilities with plenty of space inside and outside.
Mrs Bowditch July 2017
This is a beautiful, comfortable family home. The old farmhouse has been renovated to a very high standard. It was very light and airy and had a friendly feel to the place. We were lucky to have excellent weather for our short break and we made very good use of the garden. A good centre for lots of visits and trips.
Mrs Neville June 2017

Nicely situated,quiet & secluded
Mrs Addison May 2015
An ideal house and garden for a largish family party. Perfect for adults and children. Well equipped and very comfortable and liveable-in. Gorgeous bathrooms - amazing water pressure and hot water. A good half-way spot if you want to explore both north and south coasts, half-way between Truro and Falmouth. A lovely old house full of modern comforts.
Mrs Taylor April 2015
Comfortable and well equipped house for a family get together. Great value for money and good location. We had a lovely holiday and even had sunny weather!
Mr Eland May 2014
Perfect location, wonderfully homely property. Only downside is on a sunny day the garden is so peaceful and isolated you lose your motivation to go anywhere!
Mrs Watkins May 2014
A wonderful place to stay if you are looking for peace and quiet and a good night's sleep.
The cycle track nearby is great for walks or cycle rides. And the house is not too far away from great pubs/restaurants, towns and beaches.
Mrs Heath April 2014
A beautiful welcoming house in a superb location. A perfect base for family holidays! Thank you!
Mrs Parkinson February 2014
It was a lovely property - really well equipped (there's usually something lacking or substandard, but not here!). Really warm and homely, the location was great (both families have children at nearby Uni). Can't praise highly enough!
Mrs Wright September 2013
We were blown away with higher carnon farmhouse. Beautiful big garden and fantastic interior. Our week in Cornwall was perfect thanks to this beautiful house.
Mrs Oppenheimer August 2013
Fantastic comfortable farmhouse -large garden and very quiet location. Great location for exploring many beautiful areas/beaches around Cornwall. Loads to do locally for families as well- lots of great cycle rides/pubs and beaches close by. The farmhouse was nicely presented with wine and flowers when we arrived! Couple of draw backs- no tumble dryer which is a must with three kids! Also black out blinds needed and personally we found the double mattress far too soft which led to bad backs! Otherwise we enjoyed a fantastic holiday here and it was a great place to come home to after days out exploring, relaxing in the living room or outside on the patio with a glass of wine! Would definitely recommend .
